In second grade we did a lighthouse project, we all picked a light house in New England and designed a model of it. So began my love of lighthouses. There are so many sprinkled through out New England. Growing up my mom would always take us to the beaches in Gloucester. I still try and make it up there a few times each summer. There is so much to explore in that area. Great restaurants, fabulous beaches, and of course a couple of lighthouses. Eastern Point Light is a classic that will never get old. The drive to get there take a little while but it is well worth it!
